      3 full days

      Goreme Jul 15, 2014 at 10:07 PM

      I am arriving on a Tuesday night, departing on Saturday early morning. So I have 3 full days - this is in November.

      - Is it good time for balloon tour? Any recommendation on company or just book with the hotel?

      - I am flying into Nevsehir - is it better to rent a car? There will be 2 of us, and would like to do sightseeing and hiking. If we do rent a car, is it easy to drive around?

      - Recommendations on how to maximise the full 3 days please.

      Thanks. :)

      I don't like to drive.
      are the sites in Goreme walkable?
      I heard there are hiking routes.
      To reach them, do you need to hire a driver or join a tour?

Please advise me on more tour operators i can enquire with. Also, should i take a tour going to ihlara valley, or rather a tour to rose valley and pasabag. I will be staying in Goreme.

      Goreme & Urgup

      Goreme Jan 11, 2014 at 6:01 PM

      In Cappadocia I will stay 2 nights in a Cave room and then 2 other days in ordinary pension.
      1. Should I then spend 2 days in Goreme and then another 2 days in Urgup? Or all my time in Urgup instead of Goreme as I heard Urgup is less touristic?
      2. Is the Red/Green/Blue tours and Balloon package same as those arranged in Goreme?
      3. Is transport from Neveshir airport to Urgup similar to Goreme? (I am charged about 25TL for the pick-up from Neveshir to Goreme.)
      4. Any recommendation of accommodation for my stay in Urgup?
      Thanks.

      private driver recommendation?

      Goreme May 27, 2013 at 10:26 AM

      Hi everyone,
      We are looking to hire a driver to pick us up (and return us) to the Kayseri airport, as well as taking us to several sites around the Cappadocia area for one full day (early morning to evening.) If anyone has used a private driver, can you suggest them? Alternatively, I am thinking we might rent a car, though I'm not sure about driving in that area. I'm not so good with narrow winding roads :)

      Thank you for any suggestions!

      Driver for hire (recommendation?) or tour?

      Hello All,

      We'll fly to Kayseri airport early in the morning (July), returning to Istanbul the same night, and are hoping to either find a tour or hire an all-day taxi or private driver to help us tour the Cappadocia area.

      Any suggestions? Is there a public transportation option for doing this in case we can't hire a driver? Many thanks in advance.

      visiting Göreme in December

      Goreme Nov 4, 2012 at 11:05 AM

      Hi there,
      My husband and I are planning to visit Goreme in December this year. We are thinking to stay for 4-5 days but haven't booked anything yet. We are very keen to hike there but I assume we would need to hire a guide or join a group tour considering the time of year.
      Maybe somebody traveled there in winter time and can recommend activities or a tour operator.
      It would be great if you let me know about your experience visiting Cappadocia in winter.
      We also searching for accommodation - something simple but warm.
      Big thank you.

    • Bus Station in Nevsehir and touts

      Nevsehir Ili Oct 7, 2012 at 1:18 PM

      I understand that tourists are targeted at the Nevsehir bus station. We are traveling next week on overnight bus from Antayla. We have hotel reservations and tours already booked in Urgup. When the bus arrives in Nevsehir, do I stay on the bus to Urgup, or do I have to transfer? Any helpful tips from someone who has done this recently would be appreciated. Would I be transferring to a smaller mini bus? Who would be reliable to ask for info there if needed (I understand that often the bus companies are "in" with the pushy touts. Thank you

    • Cappadocia- Local Tour/Tour Guide versus self drive/Do-It-Yourself

      Goreme Jul 15, 2011 at 1:12 PM

      I have just finalized all the major bookings for our first trip to Turkey in late Sept/early Oct for 2 weeks. So far, I have planned everything as a 'do-it-yourself' mainly because on the few occasions that I have used a tour group, I feel rushed...I prefer to linger and read even if it means I don't get to see everything. The private guides listed online are pretty expensive for the two of us!

      So my husband and I have two full days (3 nights) in Cappadocia and I have booked accommodation in Goreme. I have read up a lot and have a pretty good idea of what there is to see both on the main tourist trail and a bit further ...with only two days and being our first visit, we will probably be mainly on the tourist trail. We do plan to rent a car for two days, the other option being day tours which I would like to avoid so I don't feel rushed..

      Is it 'doable' to rent a car and do it yourself ( reading a lot of history/geology before and during)--probably one day in and around the Goreme area including Uchisar, Avanos, and probably Derinkuyu and then Guzelyart/Ihlara Valley the 2nd day upto the Agzikarahan Caravansary? Do most people opt for a tour group or private guide? Can you get private guides locally for specific areas e.g the Open Air Museum on the spot and what does that cost?

      Renting a car in Nevsehir

      Nevsehir Apr 26, 2011 at 4:36 PM

      We are a party of 3 and are flying from IST to Nevsehir at the end of May '11. We will be in Cappadocia for 3 days. We are contemplating renting a car to transport around various towns/spots in Cappadocia instead of relying on public transportation.

      Q: Is it fairly easy to navigate around Cappadocia?
      Q: Will it be more economical for 3 to rent a vehicle than to use taxis, vans in Cappadocia?
      Q: From Cappadocia, we are planning to visit Ephesus (with a likely stop over in Pammukkale), will you recommend just driving the rental all the way to Ephesus and return the car at Ismir Airport once we are done there? From what I understand, one way drop-off charges are pretty steep, though I am not sure how much they run on an average.

      Any suggestions/recommendations are quite welcomed. Thank you in advance.
